Sketchfab is the place to be for 3D files: a platform to publish, share and embed interactive 3D content, anywhere online.

The 3ds Max Exporter lets you easily publish your 3d models to Sketchfab directly from the software. It even has robust light baking and texture control features.
The plugin has recently received some huge improvements from developer Klaas Nienhuis:

  • Animation: The exporter now uses the FBX file format instead of OBJ. As a result, you can upload 3ds Max animations!
  • Sketchfab Login: The exporter now uses OAuth2 login. Connecting to your Sketchfab accounts is simpler, safer, and you no longer have to keep track of your API Token.
  • Draft Mode: You can now choose to upload in Draft Mode. This means you can tweak Sketchfab settings and model metadata before sharing the model publicly.

To download the plugin and see more details, checkout the Exporter Page and the Official Documentation.


Klaas has also been working on another 3ds Max project called OptionsOptions, currently in Beta. It uses combination of the Sketchfab Data API and Viewer API to generate 3D model configurator mini-websites based on your 3ds Max scene’s models and materials.

Check out the awesome Maison d'Artiste Sample and try the plugin for yourself: Klaas has provided lots of details on the forum.
